Recently we had several days of nonstop freezing weather. Today we had rain! I was just on my way into the Reid Park Zoo when it began to pour. I decided to wait for another day (a non-grey day) to visit the elephants, tigers, and giraffes. Here at the entrance all visitors are greeted by this big pachyderm. It's a favorite spot for photo taking.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
